This is surprising, on the two GNU/Linux distributions I've tested this
on I am prompted to pick an R install directory which defaults to ~/R in
my home directory so no super-user privileges are required.  My original
motivation for switching from OSX to GNU/Linux was precisely this sort
of weird Mac-specific library install issues across a number of tools
(most notably LaTeX).  Although, a couple of years after switching my
reasons for not switching back are legion. :)
